“I am a conduit for social justice.”

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT

My mother, Cherry Groce, was wrongfully shot by the police in 1985, leaving her paralysed. Seeing what she had to endure has made me passionate about disability, class and race. I want to see a more just, fair and balanced society for all. I think this can be achieved through empathy, reconciliation and healing, which then allows people to see each others perspective. It is my mission to assist marginalised people to find their voice, manage conflict, and overcome adversity as I have.

YOU CAN HELP ME BY

Lambeth Council have approved a Memorial in Brixton in honour of my mother, Cherry Groce. We hope you can play a part in creating this permanent place of reflection and inspiration, so that the public are able to connect with the full concept of justice and reconciliation. I believe that we can build a better future by honouring and learning from our past. You can support the Memorial here.
